POLITICS ALL THE
TALK HERE ?NOW
Changes in Legislative
MANY HARD FIGHTS,
Kelley and Ryan for the Speaker
MAJ. HELMS HAS OPPONENTS.
Great Fight for Secretary of the Com?
monwealth ? Governor Montague's
Patronage ?Good Plum for
Mr. Bargamin ? Politi?
cal Notes and
Ncariy all. the talk in political circles
now.is regarding tho coming Legislature,
the sweeping changes in that body and
the lights that will come before it next
winter. In the first place it is regarded
as one of the most important bodies that
has assembled in the Capitol for years.
as it will be charged with the responsible
work of putting into effect the hew Con?
Roth branches will have new presiding
officers, and many new faces will be
seen in both chambers when the bodies
Lieutenant-Govornor-elcct Willard does
not go into office until January 1st. so
Lieut?nant-Governor Echols will preside
over the Senate tip to that time, l'ut
the? House will have, to choose a new
speaker at the opening of the session.
The only aspirants arc Hon. S. 1,. Kelley,
of this city, and Hon. John F. Ryan,
o? "Loudoun. The latter has served one
term as speaker; and both are strong
and popular men. The contest promise?
to be spirited.
In the House new committee chairmen
will c?me to the front, many of the pres?
ent ones not having been re-elected. The
defeat of Captain Parks and Dr. Fitzpat
riek on Tuesday removes the chairmn
of two very important committees. Th?
former presided n-ver the Committee on
GenoraULaws and the latter over that o\\
Asylums and Prisons.
Most of the more important committees
will necessarily have new chairmen. The
samo is true of the Senate side. Messrs.
Flood, Fairfax. Sands, Maynard. Morris
- and -St. Clair being amour the prominent
chairmen not in the new Senate,.
' 'FOR STATIC OFFICES.
But apart from the interest that centers
in the new- leaders that will come t? the
? front in the Legislature, the politicians
are talking about the lights for State
offices to be determined by that body.
Senator Keezell will hardly be a candi?
date-for treasurer now. since his county.
has gone Republican. If he.dc.es not op-.
' lioso Colonel Harmon, that popular offi?
cial will hardly have opposition.' Judge
Dew has no avowed .o-tponent lot? second
auditor as yet. and Colonel Richardson
will probably have ajwalk?ver for regis?
trar ?? tho land office. Colonel Marye
will not likely be opposed, not is it
thought Captain O'Bannon will have any
trouble on this score. Superintendent ,T.
III. Bader. of the public schools of Staun?
ton, will run ag-iust Dr. Southall for
superintendent of public instruction.
BUTTON AND MANN.
. Colonel. Joe Button will be re-elect???.!
.clerk of the Senate, and Colonel Mann
will most likely lie retained in a like
position in the House. One of the great?
est lights will be -or superintendent ?G
the penitentiary. "Major Helms will stand
again, and -he y.ill be opposed by Colonel
S. -M. ? Newhouse,- of Culpeper. and .Mr.
?. W. Finch, of Roanoke. "Major B. ?AV.
Lynn, of Loudoun. ex-superintendent,
lias also been mentioned. Colonel New
house has just been returned as a mem?
ber-of the House of Delegates, and will
manage his light himself, aided by strong
irionds in Ihe Eighth Districi. Delegate
Barbour said last night that the Colonel
would tight to the finish, and that lits
prospects of election were very blight
There will be at least one more great
fish*.. It will be for Secretary of the
Commonwealth, and? there are six' can?
didates in "the lie!?". They arc "Messrs.
J. G. nankins. P.. O. James. D. Q. Eg
gleston. Judge AV. S. Gooch, and Messrs.
l? 1?. Druiiimoiid and it. L. Ailworth.
Mr. llankins is acting secretary now.
and has been connected with the office
for sixteen years. The light will be
lively, as all the candidates are popular.

BALTIMORE, AID., Nov. G.?Returns
received in this city up to midnight, in?
cluding every county in the State,-partly
official and' partly estimated, indicate a
result in the legislative contest which is
almost without parallel in Maryland. The
mest careful estimates and calculations
give the Democrats forty-six delegates
and seven newly elected senators, whicli
combined' with the ten who hold' over In
tho Senate, assures the friends of Mr.
Gorman a total of sixty-..hree on joint
ballot. The Republicans, it appears, have
elected forty-nine delegates and six sena?
tors, which added to their three hold-over
senators, gives them a total of fifty-eight
on joint ballot.

licans will be able to organize the House

ESCAPE OF WILLIAM JOHNSON.
The most miraculous incident of the ac?
cident was the-escape of William John?
son, who was beneath the scaffold, from
death. He was in the basement of the i
building firing* a stationary eng'ne, di- j
rectly under tne falling1 frain" work, and j
around him and his engine- fell the wreck
of broken timber, mortar, boards, bricks
and other building material, which came
down with the crash. Other workmen in
the building were sure he had been killed,
and stooil aghast when the engineer
limped from the cloud o* dust ??;? dirt.
Tlis ankle was badly sprained and he sus?
tained several bruises, but otherwise was
TOO.MUCH WEIGHT OX ?".
The giving away of the scaffold is sup?
posed to have beer, caused by the heavy
weight with which it had been taxed, and
the fact that at tbe time it fell the men
were attempting to remove a portion of
the platform that it might bo*strength?
ened. There -wics no warning of the ap?
proaching danger, and before even the
workmen on an adjoining scaffold knew
\vliat liad happened the wreck was crash?
ing through the rafters of ihe lower floors
breaking them as splinters, and adding
their weight to tho wreckage, which
smashed the stationary engine in the
hasement below. The sound of falling
timbers and the cries of the injure?! men
for help could be heard in the neighboring
buildings, and quickly a large crowd was
gathered and a nurnber of people volun?
teered to remove the men from the wreck.
Tii?y were carried into tho engine room
of the Baughman Stationary Company,
where they were made as comfortable as
possible until pyhsicians and ambulances
arrived. ? Dr. W. T. Oppenhimer and Drs.
Poster and Harrison, of the ambulance ?
corps, soon appeared on the scene, and.
after hurried examination, had the in?
jured removed to the hospitals.
HIS INJURIES WERE FATAL.
Dr. Oppenhimer accompanied Mr. Pat?
terson to the-Retreat.-and upon examina?
tion there announced that his injures
were of the most serious nature, there
being a fracture of the 3:?;i!| and internal
injuries. Tiie injured man was never con?
scious after the accident and died somr
thing after 2 o'clock before an operation
was performed. He was foreman of the
brick-lay??rs on the budding in the em?
ploy of Mr. E. T. Mankin. contractor.
His relatives were notified soon after the
aociucnt and were.with him at the hos?
pital i? --? the end"came. He is survived
by his wife and three children, two daugh?

(By Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 6.?Tha
climax of the Schiey court of inquiry came .
.-ils afternoon when jlr. juayner, the
chief counsel for Admiral Ochley. con- !
eluded a brilliant argument of over three ?
hours, with a peroration, so eloquent and
impassioned that all within the sound ol ?
his voice were profoundly touched.- Iu
vivid colors he painted tho picture of tha !
Brooklyn with Commodore Scniey on th?
bridge, lighting the entlro Spanish fleet ,
until the Oregon appeared out of the
smoke. Tho thunders of the Brooklyn's ;
guns, music for the ears of his country- ?
men, he salu, aroused Admiral Schley's ?
envious foes. He pictured the victorious
sailor suffering as few have suffered for
three long years while the fires of perse?
cution leaped around him. and now await? ?
ing the hour of his vindication in ihe ver?
dict of the court.
The scene In the court fooni as Mr.
Rayner linished was thrilling. The at?
tendance had been large all day and at
the morning session a lady had fainted
from, excitement. As Mr. Rayner began
his eulogy of Admiral Schiey those ir. th-?
audience, many of whom were ladleg.
leaned forward in their seats. Tho spell
of his oratory was over them and when
he descrihed the Admiral's- gallant deeds |
??.i-d the long persecution to which he had j
been subjected many of them broke down
Tho members of the court displayed!
evidences of emotion, and Admiral Schiey
himself was plainly moved. He sat, lean- '
?ng back, with his hands beh''iiB his head.
His chin twitched, and as his counsel
said he- could afford to await the verdict
of posterity two big tears rolled down
his cheeks. He moved uneasily to coiv
ceal his emotion, and under the pretense
of adjusting his glasses brushed' the tears
aside. For fully thirty seconds after Mr.
Rayner closed' there was not a sound*.
Then the tension broke In a ?oud burst '
Admiral Dewey, after about ?a half ?
minute, arose to remind! ?he spectator? ?
that such a demonstration was out of
place. A moment afterward the court
adjourned, the Judse Advocate pleading;
that he could not well go on to-da..-. ?
Then another remarkable thing hap,?sii???".
As soon as the gavel fell the t-r.-ir-? :
audience surged forward to shake tin* ]
hands of Admiral Schiey and Mr. Ra-yner. '
but the on-coming spectators fell back j
a moment as they saw Admiral Dew-s?
and his two associates move around tho
table, as if by ?a common impulse, and j
congratulate Admiral Schily end his
counsel. Even Captain Lemly. the "fcdga
Advocate, came forward to join In ih?* ?
congratulations. Then, the public heltl [
its inning, and? for fifteen mi nu tes after
the court adjourned Admiral Schiey and.
Mr. Rayner were kept busy shaking
